Inspired by author Haruki Murakami’s fictional worlds, Verse is pleased to present Magical Realism: a new group exhibition in two-parts, featuring Jesse Draxler, Jake Fried, Sputniko, Qubibi, Yazid, Shunsuke Takawo (generativemasks), Richard Nadler, Rudxane, Gary Edward Blum, and Nicolas Sasson. Cromwell gallery space.
Murakami’s stories place readers in a liminal space somewhere between the real and the imagined. Exploring the same eerily familiar space as Murakami, the works in ‘Magical Realism’ elevate and distort the material of everyday life to magical realms.
This exhibition will present a debut selection by some of the most distinctive curators in the digital and generative art space. These include Skygolpe and Junya Yamamine, who all present works that carefully unpick the seam of our shared reality.
Part II addresses the relationship between dreams and our imaginations, exploring how these experiences share an inextricable connection. These reveries are tempered by the feelings of alienation and disdain which many of us harbour for today’s saturated, tired culture. Artists include: Jesse Draxler, Jake Fried (Night Vision from his private collection), rudxane, Gary Edward Blum, and Nicolas Sasson presenting their most recent works.
